Welcome Home Pawty for Asta

Our dear friend, Asta has been touring Rome with her mom and dad all week long and they'll be home on Tuesday! Scruffy, Lacie and Stan have organized a welcome home pawty for her! She's going to be so surprised! shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh - it's a secret!

And now we hear that this will be a two-fer pawty because it's Ruby's birthday! Woot! heheheh I always wanted to say that! Happy birthday, Ruby girl!

Click to play Happy Birthday, Ruby!

I immediately grabbed mom's cookbook to see what we could make that would be just perfect for her pawty! hummmmmmmmmmm Can you see my granny/nonna glasses? I might as well play the part! hehehehe

What do you think, Mitch? Is this recipe special enough?

We think that it's still cold enough in New York that we can eat soup, so we're going to bring some Italian wedding soup!
And manicotti immediately came to mind so we'll being a tray of that too! You can never have too much food, right?!
And then for dessert - well, we sorta went overboard but Italian desserts are just the BEST! We couldn't agree - should it be cookies?
Or pastry~
Or cake~

So we're just going to bring them all! We want to make sure that Asta is totally surprised and that all of our friends have a great time and stay really late for that poker game!

We just found out that our goodest and bestest friend, Putter will be coming with us! Whoopee! The more the merrier, we always say! Awesome, Putter! We'll pick you up in the afternoon!

We can tell that you're super excited! So are we! This pawty is going to be so much fun! Putter has volunteered to bring 6 cases of wine! Do you think that'll be enough?!

Now to figure out how to get all this stuff to New York! hummmmmmm We live too close to Asta's house to make AireRuby make an extra stop!

Mitch and I thought about it and we found the perfect solution! An AireVan! Maybe we'll meet up with AireRuby in the sky and we can wave to all of our buddies before we all have to land!

See you all at Asta's!

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Joe Stains said...

omdog you guys are bringing SO MUCH good stuff, I won't know what to try first. I tend to get red sauce all over my face because I have no snooter so I might stay away from the manicotti!

See you there!

I don't understand this pawty thing! Are people really flying??? What happens! What do you do?

Hi M & M,

Me so excited about the party. My Mommy made an Italian Cream cake and I bought a special bottle of wine. All that Italian food...the Mommy said it reminded her of when her Grandma Bono used to have everybody over for dinner. Now she just eats the Italian wedding soup that Campbells make but it just ain't the same.

Love ya lots & lots....Mona

hi M&M, we are gonna have one heck of a party with 6 cases of wine. we heard someone else was bringing beer and Brody was gonna start a belching contest. we are bringing garlic bread, so the belches will be more fragrant. it will be good to see our little Asta fuzzy-butt again.

Looks like you have it all under control.

Maggie and Mitch...

Hey dogs! I CAN'T believe we drank all of Putter's wine!! Well, Fenway doin' his herdin' thing and bringin' all the New York zoo animals in probably didn't help. Thankfully, Asta's rents have enought to tide us over on that cart till the delivery van gets here!!

Where DID you find that Aire Van??? Mumsie sorta went into a seizure when she saw that pic.
Dunno why.

Mitch...GREAT IDEA this mornin' to set up the mud pit at the end of the slip and slide!!!! I think the idea of dryin' off on Asta's peep's bed works well's sooooooooo comfy. My complexion is gonna look fab after all that time in the mud pit....


Baby Love said...

You guys are awesome party planners.

Christaligia said...

Hi Mitch & Maggie! I'm playing catch up and spent a lot of time here looking at all your great pictures and reading about your plans. That Italian food and goodies look great. :-) I hope to come back again soon. Loved all the new pics.

Lady Kaos said...

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that the fig newtons failed misserably lat night. We're going to give them a little longer try because Mom says it could have been old poop that was in the transition from the break we had after the pineapple to the fig newtons. I hope that's what it was because I am REALLY loving the fig newtons.

Agatha and Archie said...

We're bringing 6 cases too.That should get us through a few hours.Love A+A

Hammer said...

Hi Mates
The food looks delicious and I love my food.
I'm not happy right now. I can't go to Asta's surprise pawty or any pawties coz my mum is too busy again. I'm behind with my blogging again. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with my mum. Shaking the paw is not working.
I'll be thinking of you all at the pawty and flying Aire Ruby.
Love from Hammer
